After my computer died I took my harddrives and graphics card to my cousins so I can put them in a spare computer he has. Computer boots up fine and dandy, but it doesn't display a network adapter sub tree in the device manager. I have been all over google looking for fixes and cannot seem to find one.
We have tried both a wireless adapter and plugging the ethernet cord into the computer to see if the computer would recognize either but alas it does not.
Side problem is that I have a Radon 5570 card in there and it does not let me bring up the catalyst control center for it, just denies the fact the card is in there despite the fact I have the display running from that card and have PCI - E enabled for the default boot.
I also have whatever LAN option that is on the BIOS enabled, cannot think of the exact terminology in which it was stated but it defiantly seemed like something that should be enabled.
System model is an Inspiron 518
Will be checking this thread regularly and provide whatever information that anyone requests that can help solve the issue. Thank you
